1. That issue is addressed in
the latest Zeitgeist movie: Moving Forward, amongst many other relevant subjects. It is an important and controversial subject that deserves far more attention amongst astute and concerned people.

It can be said that poverty is one of the biggest killers on the planet. Around 30k children die every day, globally, (roughly, have not checked recent stats) simply because food, potable water or basic medical care is not available to them. You could fill-up a major stadium with them each and every day.
